The KonMari Method™

'Keep only those things that speak to your heart'.  - Marie Kondo

Marie Kondo

Marie Kondo is a Japanese tidying expert and the author of the bestseller 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up' (2011). The KonMari Method™ is widely regarded as the most effective approach to decluttering.


Marie Kondo guides people in the process of decluttering their home by asking yourself the question ‘does it spark joy’? Transforming cluttered homes into spaces of serenity and joy.

'Look more closely at what is there'. - Marie Kondo

The KonMari Method™

The KonMari Method™ is  based on the following six principles:

1. Commit yourself to tidying up

2. Imagine your ideal lifestyle

3. Finish discarding first

4. Tidy by category, not by location 

5. Follow the right order: beginning with clothes, moving on to books,             papers, komono (miscellaneous) and, finally, sentimental items.

6. Ask yourself if it sparks joy

 

The method consists of gathering all your belongings, one category at a time, focusing on choosing and keeping only those items that spark joy and designating a home for everything. If belongings no longer spark joy to you, they are respectfully let go of.

The KonMari Method™  has you address your relationship with your stuff. It allows you to evaluate all of your belongings by focusing your attention on each possession for a moment to consciously consider its value in your life.  An introspective, mindful and forward-looking process that takes you beyond the physical acts of sorting and putting things away.

It is about choosing what you want to surround yourself with, because what you surround yourself with defines your life.

I’m Michelle, originally from the Netherlands and living in Zurich since 2012 with my husband and two children.

As a Certified KonMari Consultant and founder of Simply Serene I brought together my lifelong passion for organising, my love for working with people and

extensive experience as a social worker in guiding families through life transitions.

My journey started after reading 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up' (2011) and tidying my own home. 

The effect and results of this process, and the way it reflected on my life, blew me away. It helped me choose and value what really matters to me and what truly brings me joy.

It gave me a sense of lightness and calm, awareness and gratitude in living with only those things I love.

The KonMari Method™ has changed my home, my life and my heart. It helped me create space for a life I love.

I continued my journey in April 2018 when I attended the KonMari seminar in London, and was certified as a KonMari Consultant in December 2018.

Your Story

'Letting go is hard. But being free is beautiful'.   - Wilder

 

"I cannot even put into words how much this tidying process has meant for myself personally but also for my whole family. My husband and kids were at first reluctant but now even they got inspired and are also folding and keeping their belongings tidy. It feels like a wave of change in the house but also within the family. Life is lighter.

Michelle is such a lovely, warm and engaging person, she makes the whole tidying process so easy and smooth, even if it's hard work, both physically and mentally. I cannot recommend her enough, you need to experience it yourself. Thank you Michelle".
